Manufactured by GN Tobacco, Oden’s Extreme No 3 Los is a recent addition to the Oden’s line of snus and is the result of consumers looking for an Oden’s brand with a pure tobacco taste. As a fan of tobacco dominant snus brands, I was excited to see how Extreme No 3 compared to the original Oden’s Extreme which I enjoy quite a lot. Every can of Extreme No 3 Los comes with 40 grams of extra strong snus.
Upon opening my can of Oden’s Extreme No 3 I immediately noticed a strong aroma of spicy tobacco, and it was quite pleasant. After forming a roughly one gram portion and placing it in my mouth, I soon noticed a spicy tobacco flavor and not much else. This spicy flavor persisted for about fifteen minutes, and afterwards it began to transition towards a slightly smoky tobacco taste. I was very impressed with the complex tobacco flavors produced by No 3 and I found myself preferring it over the taste of original Oden’s Extreme.
As a loose type of snus, Extreme No 3 Los has a very fine grind. The fine grind can make it slightly difficult to form portions, but an IceTool solves this problem quite easily. The snus is also quite moist and this produces a rapid and strong nicotine buzz which is similar to the buzz experienced while smoking a cigarette. Within a few minutes I began to experience a powerful nicotine buzz which lasted for around thirty minutes before beginning to subside. Due to its high moisture level, I generally began to experience drip around the thirty minute mark and removed my portions after about forty minutes.
Overall, Oden’s Extreme No 3 Los is definitely one of my favorite brands of loose snus on the market today. With its rich tobacco taste and strong nicotine content, No 3 has a great taste and strong nicotine kick and I recommend it to experienced snusers who enjoy a strong buzz. Extreme No 3 pairs well with strong black coffee as well as darker beers including porters and stouts. Furthermore, due to its high nicotine content and moisture level, No 3 Los is a great snus for those looking to make the transition from cigarettes or dipping tobacco to snus.
